Summary
A Short History of Women opens in England in 1915, at the deathbed of Dorothy Townsend, a suffragist and one of the first women to integrate Cambridge University. Dorothy's daughter, Evie, travels to America after WWI and becomes a professor of chemistry at Barnard College. Decades later, following the death of her son, Evie's niece, also named Dorothy, defies the ban on photographing the caskets of soldiers killed in Iraq at Dover Air Force base, and is arrested. Both young professionals, Dorothy's daughters are embarrassed by their mother's activism and baffled when she leaves their father after 50 years of marriage
